  • Speaker: A Better Man, in reply to Danielle,

    Very true, variation can be fun and interesting - but the tendency of politicians to laud the achievements of sporting figures hardly represents a new and novel development - they are all doing it and have been for some time. Perhaps it is time for a bit of variation, after all?

  • Speaker: A Better Man,

    Strange that politicians on both sides of the House seem to find it necessary to look to sporting figures for examples of inspirational leadership. Perhaps if we could move beyond the idea of people who are expert at throwing, hitting or kicking balls as role models then we might actually witness more examples of inspirational leadership from our elected representatives.
